Jorge Luis's story

Jorge is an enterprising young man who is 19 years old. He is single and lives in Ica with his family. For almost a year he worked as a field hand on an agricultural farm. This work suited him well because he is a very responsible, hard working person with great dreams of advancement. His primary motivation is in life is his family. It is for them that he struggles day after day to support them as much as possible.

Jorge is thankful for the Kiva loans because, with the support they have provided him, he will be able to buy cattle and goats to start a small business in animal sales--since he already has knowledge of this business thanks to his grandfather who worked in this sector for a time. With this, he will be able to generate additional income with which he with be able to improve his family's quality of life little by little. In this way, little by little, he will continue pushing himself in order to start another business in clothing sales.
